Mary Virginia3 is spending her vacation here2 with me—she came two weeks ago and seems to be having a very happy time. I know I am. The weather has been glorious—our first hard storm is going on today. I am fairly driven to death with letters and telegrams about the new book4, but I do run away and take long walks with Edith5 & Virginia. Whether Elsie6 will keep the home7 yard up, I don't know; but at least you and I have got it up, and I thank you with all my heart. — I will tell you about D. H. Lawrence8 sometime; I knew him quite well and liked him. He was unquestionably the most gifted writer of his generation, but he let his hates and prejudices run away with him—though I expect Pauline9 & Josephine Goldmark10 would not agree with me there.
I am well and awfully happy up here. I dread going back to the world again.Very lovingly Willie
